Awesome place, Super close to Disney
This place was great! It was in the best location. Located super close to the entrance to the complex and right off of magic way. The 1st day we took the tram, but found out it is just as fast to walk to disneyland. We also found a Wal-mart 1-2 miles away and were able to purchase groceries and cook in the home, saved lots of $$. The Mickey Mouse waffle maker was a hit!
Beds were comfortable, we have 4 kids and all slept through the night. My kids loved the stuffed animals and books in the home. Plenty of towels and bedding. A/C worked great. We felt safe in the community.
The owner provided super detailed information as to getting to the complex and details how to work each room in the home. On the website there was much information about the area, also provided an area book with information about things to do. This was helpful.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely do this again over a hotel when we travel.
We came with one adult child. Being able to be 10 min walk from park was terrific. We entered Downtown Disney took monorail and bypassed all the lines. Highly recommend. Very comfortable and convenient.
This home was perfect! My wife and I brought our 6 and 8 year olds to Disneyland and this was the perfect place to stay. It is a quick 5 minute walk to the entrance to downtown Disney then another 5 or so to the park entrances. Very close! The condo was perfect for the four of us. My kids loved the bunk beds and the king was great for my wife and me. The kitchen is a little small, but well stocked. There was everything we needed. The living room was comfy and there is a huge selection of movies. Great detailed instructions on how to use everything as well. The laundry room was great to have and the detergent and dryer sheets were great to have available. There were also 3 strollers, 2 umbrella and one sit n stand, which would be great if our kids still needed them. There was a pack n play too, but we didnt use it. The bathroom was also a little small upstairs, but it was good for our family for the short time we were there. The available parking spot is extremely close to the condo and the garage would be great if needed. We didn't use it, but would be nice to have access to if we needed it. The pool was on the cold side, but my kids still loved it. We all enjoyed the hot tub! There were plenty of towels for all of us too. The fireworks were able to be seen from outside the condo, which was nice. Our kids go to bed early, so we were still able to see them. Not only is it close to the parks but also other restaurants like Bubba Gumps, House of Blues, In n Out, and so many others. These weren't nearly as crowded as the ones in Downtown Disney either. Quick and easy I-5 access as well.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time here and would stay here again.
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION
PROS: The only way you could get closer to the park would be to stay in the Disneyland hotel itself, which is right across the street! I have parked at Disneyland and it took longer to walk through the parking lot than it did to walk to the park from this location. It's also perfect because you enter through the other end of Downtown Disney than the parking lot so there is no line to get your bag searched, at least there wasn't for us (we went first week of March). The kids were super excited that there was a Mickey themed bathroom and a large Mickey in the house as well as candy and coloring books to greet them! There are lots of kids DVDs to keep the kiddos distracted while you pack up for the day. There is a gate at the top of the stairs for safety when we had the kiddos up there which was nice. We didn't need them but there were 2 strollers and 3 umbrella strollers in the laundry room. There was laundry soap and dish soap available. They had a pack n play already set up for us in the closet of the master bedroom which worked out really well cuz we could close the door there and be able to move around the room without our baby hearing or being awoken from light.
CONS: We but we did a lot of meal prepping while we were there so we didn't have to buy food while in the park and I would suggest bringing your own knives if you plan on cooking. The ones there are not sharp. Also the beds are squeaky.
We will definitely stay there again if we can!
Dirty House & Uncomfortable Beds
I'm shocked that this home has such good reviews. The floor is broken in the master, the pack 'n play had gum stuck on it, the bed in the kids room is the most uncomfortable bed we have ever slept on and the master bed squeaks every time you moved. The furniture is very worn and old. That being said, the location was fantastic, just a quick walk to Downtown Disney and the stroller provided was very helpful. We did use the pool area. The pools were extremely dirty but we did like having access to a hot tub. Mindy & Josh did allow us an early check-in, which was nice. All in all, I would definitely stay at this complex again, just a different home.
Great location and responsive owners
We booked this trip a few months in advance and then had a potential family emergency, the owners were willing to work with us at a loss to themselves. They also responded quickly when there was an issue with a toilet.
We loved all that this home had to offer; plenty of space, all the essentials included, the washer/dryer and strollers/pack n play were AMAZING! Not to mention the location is perfect!
I highly recommend this property and will try to stay here again next time we go to Disney- thank you for everything.
Anaheim, CA is home to Disneyland & centrally located. Los Angeles and all of its attractions (Universal Studios, Hollywood, Zoo, Santa Monica beach & pier) is immediately to the north, about a 30-45 minute drive. Freeways are easily accessible (right around the corner). San Diego is immediately to the south. Sea World, Lego Land, the zoo and wild animal park await you there! 1.5 - 2 hours away.
If you want to stay closer to 'home' while your here, you're in luck. Orange County has beaches (Huntington, Newport, Laguna, Balboa Island), amusement parks (Disneyland, California Adventure, Knott's Berry Farm), water parks (Soak City, La Mirada Splash), family entertainment (Downtown Disney, local city markets, Medieval Times dinner & tournament), & family fun (Irvine Park & Zoo, Discovery Museum, & more!).
Its time to visit Southern California & stay at Storybook Villa #2
